The Help for Heroes London Underground Collection

Posted on behalf of Help for Heroes
THURSDAY 21st JUNE 2018

Help for Heroes has been granted a Flag Day to collect at a number of London Underground stations (and a few Network Rail over ground stations – also in London) on Thursday 21st June. Volunteers are urgently needed on this day. Please call 01483 743851 or call the details on the poster below. The key time periods during the day where we are short at the moment are the two commuting periods of 0700-0900hrs and also 1700-1900hrs – volunteers giving their time before and after work. However, we do need volunteers for all time periods as the collection will be taking place all day between 0700-1900hrs.

Thank you for your help. As always, please spread this far and wide within your interests.me community.

HELP FOR HEROES – THE LEADING CHARITY FOR THE ARMED FORCES COMMUNITY

Help for Heroes believes that those who put their lives on the line for us, deserve a second chance at life. We provide lifetime support for the Armed Forces Community and their families.

HELPING Veterans, service personnel and their families

Today, seven people will be medically discharged from the Armed Forces and their lives will change forever. In an instant, these highly-trained individuals will lose the camaraderie, purpose and career which has been their life.

We provide recovery and support for the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service, no matter when they served.

Our aim is to empower Veterans and Service Personnel to look beyond illness and injury. Every penny we raise, facility we run and activity we offer is to help Veterans and Service Personnel reach their potential, regain their purpose and have a positive impact on society.
